Hi, smarky. :-) Not sure on your Sparky version / setup or your proficiency with Linux, the command-line, etc., but here are some ideas that may help you move forward:

1. Check if your system has a GUI for audio settings; if so, see if there's anything there that might be relevant.

2. For the alsa-related things, it sounds like you just need to find out the right command and related syntax for whatever you want to try. I would start by first doing a search for related packages with the keyword 'alsa'. In the terminal it would be:apt search alsa | less(A search like this can often produce multiple pages of output, so I like to add '| less', which shows the first page and lets you navigate up and down through the output; once you're done, hitting 'Q' will take you back to the prompt.) In a package manager like 'Synaptic', there's usually a search function that you can use for this. With searches like this, it should show you the available packages related to alsa that are either installed or available to install from the standard repos. From these you should be able to clarify a bit more what you want / need to try, as well as figure out some keywords to search on your computer ('man' pages of installed programs) or online to figure out names of commands, related syntax, sample usage, etc.

3. Also, someone may be able to help you if you provide more information. When you're looking for help on this or other similar forums, it would be good for you to mention what version of OS (i.e. Sparky here) you're using along with the window manager (WM) and/or desktop environment (DE). You can use the command-line tool 'inxi' and its various options to generate general / specific / relevant information about your system that you can then copy from the terminal (Shift + Ctrl + C) and paste into your post here using the code markers for easier readability. (Hover over the icons above where you're writing till you see the one marked 'Code', click on that and it should give you code markers like this: "code""/code" except with bracket markers in place of the quote markers. Then just paste the inxi output from the terminal between the code markers so it will show up correctly [you can use the preview option to check it's working as expected].) The 'inxi' tool has lots of different options -- here is just one example:inxi -Frz(The '-F' option includes basic information for quite a few parts of your system, the '-r' option provides details on your repos, and the '-z' option filters out some things for privacy / security, which is probably a good idea when posting in public spaces like this forum.)

Installation / Sparkylinux installation on ch...
Last post by smarky - May 28, 2024, 12:02:46 AM
Hello
I installed sparkylinux on an HP chromebook that had sound with MX Linux no problem but with only 16 gb of hard drive and no way to upgrade it I am trying sparky. I really like Sparky but I have no sound. I have looked all over and tried so many solutions for other distros with no success. Many of them said to
"sudo alsa force-reload" and all I get is "sudo: alsa: command not found" so I "sudo apt install alsa-base" but that says the latest alsa-base is already installed. If anyone knows a fix that  would be great. If you need any info let me know and I will post it.
Everything else seems to be working pretty good.
thanks

Yes, of course. I've tried using the XFCE configuration but without any effort.
I've found a post suggesting to use dconf-editor: nothing also with this editor.

As soon as I close the window after disabling the scroll I've found that my settings are not saved.
I haven't tried to connect a mouse in order to check if there will be some difference, but I dont think so.

At first I've tried using KDE (before starting from scratch with XFCE) and with this DM everything went fine.

The only drawbacks I've found on XFCE are this natural scrolling issue and the impossibility to remove the trash icon from the desktop (in this case no settings available to remove this icon)

Desktops / Re: What is the max ram amount...
Last post by duststuff - May 22, 2024, 05:40:10 PM
Hi, Larry. Have you searched online at all for this information? It would normally be included in a user manual / guide for the motherboard, which is often available from the manufacturer's website. The first thing I would check is if your overall PC / system has any kind of service tag number or serial number. If it does, you can probably go to the manufacturer's website and use that to search for resources (including documentation) for your specific system. If not, then the next thing I would do is search with keywords like 'hp 83ee' 'motherboard' 'manual' or something similar in order to find somewhere you can download it from for your reference. If you don't care about having the manual for other purposes, you could drop 'manual' as a keyword and add 'maximum ram' to see what comes up. In my experience I've found the above process relatively straightforward to find this info, even with pretty old computers.

Also, if you're running the actual system, there are various tools that provide information about hardware, some of which are probably already installed. This would be a way to get more detailed information about your motherboard, if needed. If you're running Linux, 'lshw' is a pretty standard command-line utility for this. Another one that can be helpful is 'inxi'. They each have various options you can add to filter the output, make it more verbose, etc.

(Lastly, I doubt that it's a big deal, but here on the Sparky forums and wiki, the term 'desktops' seems to primarily be used to mean 'desktop environment' (i.e. software) rather than to mean 'desktop PC' (as opposed to a laptop, etc.).)

I had 8GB of ram when I first bought the prebuilt computer, I first upgraded it to be 12GB's of ram by adding one 4gb ram, and now I added another 4gb ram stick (G-Skill DDR4 4GB 2400MHZ.)

   WTF lad. You weren't the smartest in your class, huh ???

 Why do you repeat exactly word-for-word a message ....???





That you have already posted on the HP forum, where you have received several answers, and is already SOLVED:

Last post by cecca - May 22, 2024, 02:43:31 PM
Hi!
I've just reinstalled from scratch my Sparky with XFCE on an old MacBook Pro and I've quite configured everything as I wish. The only problem is with the touchpad: in the setting I'm trying to disable the natural scrolling (untick the relevant option) but I can't save this setting. As soon as I close the window the natural scrolling is there.
What can I do?
Thanks for any help you can give to me.

Does no one have any idea?

Of course, in the meantime there were a lot of updates. But, I could not solve my problem.
I don't want to uninstall MATE and after them reinstall it again.

I think, there must be a solution.
What do you think?

Best regards.

Apparently, you're using a Japanese custom fork of Firefox ESR.

And probably like Firefox, it uses Multiprocess (e10 - Electrolysis).

Hence, you will see several entries of it in your system manager. And I guess, you'll be able to configure it manually through the 'Floorp options'








Cheers !!



Makes sense, but I only thought Chrome/Chromium did that. The more you know.
